How temporary is temporary?  All of man's works eventually crumble and
decay.  No man-made feature is permanent.  On a long enough timescale,
no geological feature is permanent either.

We shouldn't map a one-off.  But such facilities are likely to operate for
if not years.  Testing and vaccination facilities are generally not located
places like hospitals and doctors to minimize infection.  Often open-air
for the same reason, which means they are going to be building=roof
or building=marquee.  Most won't be constructed to last decades but
will be there for many months.
